I switched from FlashDevelop to Powerflasher FDT 4 beta about 2 months ago and have a lot of things to say about what a great decision it was, I intended to write a series on posts on how to made that move before but unfortunately i haven’t had the time it deserves, so on the next few posts i will cover some tips and tricks that will hopefully will show You how easily and fast is to make that switch and start enjoying truly coding comfort in no time, believe me it’s worth the try.
So for the third part of this series and I guess the last now that Adobe released the CS5 and You can explore the new Flash CS5 by Your own, in the above video I’m showing you the ActionScript 3.0 code snippets panel this cool little panel will be loved by designers and new coders alike. Lee Brimelow had already made one snippets panel and this one is based on that, to use it you simply select your movie clip and drag one snippet from this panel, your timeline will automatically add an ActionScript layer with the code needed. You can also create your own snippets so if you’re new to coding or a designer this panel will help you out a lot.
Download the Flash CS5 trial here and start playing.
Happy Coding !!!
Ok so for the second part of this series I’m showing You a little video of something you’ll love if you use to code in FlashIDE ActionScript editor.
The improved editor now let’s you work with custom code hinting and completition and it works pretty fast it’s as easy as setting your classpaths and the editor will recognize all of your libraries and custom classes.
To be totally honest, I would not leave the ActionScript editor I’m using now for the one that comes with the Flash IDE but it definitely eases up the workflow if you’re using it.
See You around.
